Hollywood is looking for books and scripts to buy. Film deal trends in 2012 showed that 32 percent of all deals made in the first six months were for books to adapt into movies. Another 28 percent were deals to purchase spec scripts (screenplays written on speculation that they will sell). In this one-day workshop, learn how to get your books and scripts directly to producers without agency representation; how to choose production companies that are most likely to want to read your scripts; where to find information about contacting producers and who to talk with at the selected companies. Discover websites used by professional Hollywood writers to keep up with what's selling in Hollywood and also learn what happens when a producer wants to option or buy your scripts. This workshop is a must for writers who want to see their stories on the big screen.
